British woman Anna Campbell is believed to have died while fighting against Isis in Syria. It is claimed that the 26-year-old from Lewes, East Sussex, was part of the all female Kurdish Womens Protection Unit in Afrin, a besieged city.
According to the Guardian the convoy she was travelling in was hit by a Turkish missile on Friday. She is said to have dyed her hair black so that she looks less like a westerner and begged her commanders to send her to the front line. Her father Dirk Campbell told the paper: Anna was very idealistic, very serious, very wholehearted and wanted to create a better world.
She wasnt fighting when she died, she was engaged in a defensive action against the Turkish Incursion.
He added that he didnt try to stop his daughter from going off to fight because once she had made her mind up she was unstoppable.
Nesrin Abdullah, YPJ commander and spokesman, said: [Annas] martyrdom is a great loss to us because with her international soul, her revolutionary spirit, which demonstrated the power of women, she expressed her will in all her actions.
On behalf of the Womens Defence Units YPJ, we express our deepest condolences to [her] family and we promise to follow the path she took up. We will represent her in the entirety of our struggles.

Is that a Joseph Stalin button she is wearing in the first picture?
Tragic loss. I would note article states Turkish Flag now flying over Afrin. Looting has begun...
Could be, the YPJ are closely linked to the communist PKK terrorist group that plagued Turkey for years.
She was neutralized in Turkey’s anti-terror operation.
I believe it to be a photo of Abdullah Ocalan. Kurdish hero and currently incarcerated in a Turkish prison. For the last 20 years.
No (hair and moustache aren’t like Stalin’s). I think it’s a leader of one of the Kurd factions.
Ocalan as a young man, I should have said. Now nearly 70.
I think that is a button of Abdullah Öcalan
It’s Abdullah Öcalan button.
A kurdish terrorist.
She looks better suited to be playing women’s field hockey or lacrosse.
I think it’s Freddy Mercury...................
She looks better suited to be playing womens field hockey or lacrosse.
Care to explain? Lacrosse is a pretty physical sport even for the Girls game, which isn’t designed to be like the Boys version.
Ah, I see the pro-Turkey Islamist crowd has arrived.
She looks like a wholesome female jock in that photo.
She was wearing a Abdullah Ocalan button.
Abdullah Ocalan is a well known Kurdish PKK terrorist.
Life is hard.
Then you die.
I notice that these later news releases are omitting her social activism in the UK was as a member of ANTIFA.
